At the Archivio di Stato, Irmavep Club is creating a show that explores the notions of memory
and transmission, tracing new paths between oral history and writing, in a guided tour of the “past
within the present”. The visit to the exhibition takes place at regular intervals and visitors are led
from room to room along a pre-established path, wending their way through the labyrinth of
symmetries that makes up the former San Luigi hospital.
The oral aspect of the experience thus takes on a new meaning, even though the guide remains in
silence, escorting visitors and stopping every so often so that they can watch a film, listen to
audio or look at an object.
The National Archives become the backdrop for a chronicle in which the works are positioned in
the past, laid out within a narrated time frame made up of miles of paper and ink, ancient maps,
giant mechanisms for preserving knowledge. In this shrine to chronological order and mnemonic
rationality, Libretto VI erases all spatial and temporal references, giving a new pace and
movement to perception.
